I must understand the greater movement of the world. Continuation Training Step 22

I must understand the greater movement of the world. (MP3)

I must understand the greater movement of the world. CT Step 22
Here you continue to build your understanding of the greater movement of the world. However, the desire for this must come from within you, and the capacity must be established or you will not be able to see or to know. Understanding the world in this way gives a greater context for your being here. Greater purpose cannot be realized within a narrow context. You must see yourself in a bigger way. You must establish your relationship with the world on a true foundation.

This is part of your foundation building. It is part of the expansion of your understanding and the range and scope of your mental and emotional capabilities. If you think about it, you will see that there are so many things that people cannot respond to emotionally or intellectually. They just cannot entertain these things. They are too big, too challenging or too different, and so they are just rejected out of hand.

But you are learning to be with life as it is and as it will be. You are preparing for the future in a way that will enable you to be in the future with a greater strength and efficacy.

Therefore, turn your eyes to the world again and ask the question, "What do I need to know about the world’s evolution and destiny?" Ask this question without providing your own answers, without emphasizing your preferences, without expressing your fears. These things may come to mind, and you will recognize them. But now you are waiting for a deeper understanding. You are calling for it. You are evoking it. You are asking the Creator to reveal it to you. You are calling upon Knowledge and opening yourself to Knowledge.

Practice today in addition to your one long practice in stillness and your hourly practices in awareness and discernment. Look and ask that you may see.

Practice 22:   One 30-minute stillness practice.
                         Contemplation practice.
                         Hourly practice.

For the continuation of reading material, the next book in Volume 1 of The Message is the not yet published "The New Life”. Thus the gray cover:

 In the list of chapter names, this is first:

We continue.

Note: If you’ve some interest, but this is the first time you’ve seen Steps, you should go to the beginning blog post. From here you will learn about Steps to Knowledge and can begin it on the day that makes sense; then progress as needed. Begin at the beginning.

If you do know about Steps, but have not done Steps twice completely, read the related materials, and have a sense of the direction of this study, you won’t get the experience. The Introduction begins:

“This is the Steps to Knowledge Continuation Training. It is designed to build upon the Steps that were learned in Steps to Knowledge to enable you to experience the grace, the power and the direction of Knowledge in your life and to become an expression of Knowledge in everything that you do. If you have completed the book, Steps to Knowledge, twice through and have followed the instructions as they were given without altering the curriculum in any way, then you are now ready to begin this more advanced study”.

If you are an independent student, that is certainly an option. Posts here provide a trail that may let you have a virtual companion when and if you want one. One may have to study alone, as I did in the beginning. There are other Steps students blogging their experience and you might find a person more like you as a companion, or use a number of such Steps journeys. There are options as well through the Free School of the New Message.
